Sammy Lloyd takes on the Yorkshire Wolds Way

6th September 2017

On September 10th ex Hull FC player Sammy Lloyd and a group of compatriots are taking on the Yorkshire Wolds Way from Filey to Hessle.

 They will walk, talk, sing, have fun, rub their blisters and raise funds for charity, The Royal Marines Charity, which has a number of branches ie  www.65degreesnorth.co.uk 

The charity believes in 'Rehabilitation through Adventure'. Not to put too fine a point on it....the walk of almost 80 miles would be a morning warm up for these folks. (i.e. Trekking across Greenland un-supported, or climbing the highest mountain in the Antarctic....many of them limbless or suffering with mental illness). 

The small band of walkers/bikers will stop each day and enjoy a drink or two in some local pub, sing a few songs, tell a few more stories....and then prepare for the next day. 

A celebrations evening will take place at the Bear Inn, South Cave on Wednesday evening, Sept 13th on the penultimate evening of the Walk.  

Entertainment in the form of the Barely Awake Ukulele Band and the Hull Ukulele Band will ensure a warm welcome and good old sing a long. Anyone with a Ukulele appreciation will be able to join them as they record a mass recital of 'Sloop John B'. 

If you want to support Sammy's adventure you can donate at his Just Giving page or join the group for fun at The Bear Inn in South Cave on 13th September
